Here are the write-up abut the shawl: As the sun drops behind the horizon the colors of scarlet and amber inflame the sky, Desert Sunset reminds me of a gorgeous hot night in the desert. Worked from side to side, this crescent-shaped shawl is worked all in one piece including the edging. Using a simple increase in the solid body of the shawl, you can enlarge or reduce the size just by changing the repeats.
